As a proud Edmontonian, Jon is a dedicated representative for his constituents – first in Edmonton-Meadowlark, where he was elected as their MLA in 2015, and now in Edmonton-West Henday, who elected him as their MLA in 2019. Jon is also the NDP Critic for Service Alberta.
Jon cares about the issues that affect everyday Albertans. Whether he’s working with Children's Autism Services of Edmonton to secure funding for expanded services, fighting to ensure enhanced consumer protections, or advocating on behalf of local businesses, he has used his time in office to pursue the concerns that matter most to Albertans.
Before being elected, Jon was employed as an electrician. He has a diploma in radio and television broadcasting from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, where he later returned to undertake an electrical apprenticeship.
